X/2 + 30 = The # of seniors & children

tickets sold.

5.5x + 5.5(x/2+30) = $14,970,

5.5x + 2.75x + 165 = 14,970,

8.25x + 165 = 14,970,

8.25x = 14,970 - 165 = 14,805,

X = 1795 Adult tickets sold.

x/2 + 30 = 1795/2 + 30 = 928 Children's

and seniors tickets sold.

Y = The # of children's tickets sold.

4y + 5 = The # of senior's tickets sold.

y + (4y+5) = 928,

5y + 5 = 928,

5y = 928 - 5 = 923,

Y = 185 Children's tickets sold.

4y + 5 = 4*185 + 5 = 745 Senior tickets
